A hilarious movie centering around Timon and Pumbaa with surprisingly wonderful animation in spite of being a direct-to-video movie. Not as good as the first two Lion Kings, but definitely one of the better Disney sequels.
The worst Direct-to-DVD-production Disney produced (so far). There was no need for that movie and there is no sense in the story, it just made "The Lion King" looking "less good". A total waste of time and Money. . . .
While I wouldn't recommend the film if you are not a fan of Timon and Pumbaa, The Lion King 1 1/2 is another of those rare Disney sequels that are actually passable and watchable. The visuals are very very nice, the animation is great, the humor is fun, and even some touching moments.
This was a surprising third instalment of the series and it kind of feels like a Disney version of Back to the Future part 2. Though they re-used clips from the original there was a step up in animation from the second film and seeing things from Timon and Pumbaa's perspective was a lot more interesting than I thought it would be.
A spinoff of a classic Disney film, starring secondary (and largely one-joke) characters, and loaded with one fart joke after another, this peculiar quasi-sequel... actually pulls it off somehow, and comes together as a genuinely entertaining and by times surprisingly clever film.
The first and third act are fun for the most part and add to the Lion King universe, but the second act where the comedic duo Timon and Puumba go around ruining iconic scenes from the first film is unforgivable.
